TD Ameritrade Park is increasing its security for Thursday night's Major League Baseball game, so if you're going, you might want to get there early. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.

Typically, ballpark security uses metal-detecting wands to screen fans entering the stadium. For the Kansas City Royals-Detroit Tigers game, walk-through metal detectors have been added.

Those metal detectors will be removed after Thursday night's game, and the stadium will return to its use of metal-detecting wands for the College World Series.

Many of the ballpark’s security rules still apply, including its clear-bag policy. Signs have been placed near the entrance gates laying out the prohibited items.

Below is a list of prohibited items. For more information regarding security, contact the TD Ameritrade Park Omaha Ticket Office at 402-546-1800.
